Publish Completed Rubric

There are three rubric status types to indicate its availability:
Draft
The initial status of a rubric. Draft rubrics are not yet available for new associations.

Published
Associations can be made with published rubrics. Once a rubric has an association, you cannot change the rubric's name, description, levels, and criteria.

Archived
Archived rubrics do not appear in default search results and are not available for new associations. Existing associations with archived rubrics remain functional.

Note: The rubric status must be "Published" in order to associate a rubric with an assessment item (e.g. Assignments, Discussions, etc.).

Changing the Status of your Rubric from Inside a Rubric

When you first create a new rubric, the status is set to Published by default.  It is recommended that you leave the status as Draft while you are creating your rubric.  Once the rubric has been created, you must change the status to Published in order to associate it with a D2L assessment.

  1. Click Assessments in the navigation bar and select Rubrics.
  2. Click on the Rubric you are editing.
  3. Click on the the status in the upper right-hand corner.
  4. Select the new status (i.e. Published). Changes are auto-saved.
